I heart Repurposing!

We heart repurposing! Junking and repurposing just go together. So, on this lovely Friday I thought I would share two super easy repurposed shelving ideas! We kinda like to be different and try new, easy, and fun things on our walls. While out on our junk hunts we see lots of old child ironing boards. Some are metal and some are wood, it doesn't matter. When it came time to decorate Ella's room this one was sitting in there and the "ah ha" moment happened. Lets put it on the wall. So of course the Junk Hunk made it happen! It only holds a few things, but we think its super cute. However, I think we need to move it because jumping on the bed seems like a lot of fun to the girls these days and I'm afraid their going to bump their heads!

Same thing happened with this idea. We were setting up Lulu's room and this mid century plant stand was just sitting there. I think by placing it on the wall it shows of the modern design really well and it's a great space saver too! Next time your thinking you need some shelving don't forget to check out your junk pile. There might just be the perfect thing waiting.

Hope you all have a Happy Valentines Day!

I have a little ironing board like that, too, and I've been wondering what to do with it. I used to use it as a tiny little end table in our old house, but there is no good place for it where we are now. I love the idea of hanging it on the wall!
